A week ago the Waterloo Region Record carried the following story titled "Nursing home cited for drug incidents". Remarkably (or not) the nursing home involved is Caressant Care in Woodstock. Yes that is the home at the centre of the murder charges against Elizabeth Wettlaufer, a nurse alleged to have killed patients in her care at that home as well as in London. The allegations suggest that she used drugs to kill several residents.
The current problems involve 41 drug-related incidents at the home between early August and late December of last year. The following problems were identified: "22 such incidents involved medication not given to patients, six involved patients given the wrong dosage, five involved drugs given to the wrong person, three were doses given at the wrong time and one was medication administered without a prescription.".
Anybody believe that it's just coincidence that the Ministry of Health and Long-term Care just happened to find these serious and totally unnecessary failures after Elizabeth Wettlaufer was charged with murder? Or is it more likely that somebody said Holy Cr.. what's been going on there? Let's check things out. In other words only after there's been a crisis are the Ministry stepping up and doing their duty.
